I’m very excited. November 2011 heralds the second anniversary of Inspiration Month at UnArts. Why is this so exciting, aside from the obvious inspirational aspect? Because Inspiration Month is the first official tradition we started in our inaugural year as UnRuley Articles. And I’m big on traditions. Old ones, new ones, just-a-twinkle-in-their-parents-eye ones.

To mark this momentous second anniversary we’ve got a host of blog posts coming down the pike showcasing the different and wonderful things, people, places and events that inspire us.

Lillypad in a puddle

Our back garden provides me with a never ending supply of joy and inspiration. So much green. All those wild, and not so wild things growing. The winged and the furry wild life stopping in for a rest, to build a nest, grab a snack or take a drink in our tiny pond.

Goodness me, I love our garden. It’s my sanctuary, my sanity check, my biggest source of lost hours on a Sunday afternoon, not to mention all over body stiffness, lower back pain, messy nails and dirty feet. And I wouldn’t change that for any money in the world.



On November 11th, 1951 Laura Leigh Moore entered this wild wonderful world. And on November 12th, 2011, Laura will be rejoicing in her first sixty years with a one woman show, Stepping into the Light. Unfortunately we can’t get across the pond to share in my mother’s musical celebration of life, but we’ll be there in spirit. Happy Birthday, mum.

The Wren’s Nest in Dudley, West Midlands, England. Were you can walk along an ancient sea bed. Stumble on fossils. Spy foxes, greet fellow travelers, and dodge the odd illegal motorbike.

A ten minute hike will find you looking across the Dudley city landscape and out to Dudley castle. It’s breathtaking, and I don’t just mean the steep climb to the top.




Bearwood Handmade Holiday Festival

UnRuley Articles is joining forces with thirty-nine other vibrant and talented local craftspeople at the second annual Bearwood Handmade, a Christmas Holiday Faire.

Presented by the Crafty Muthas, Bearwood Handmade is being held over two separate events: 19th Nov & 3rd Dec 2011.

We’ll be slinging our wears with nineteen other bakers, artists and creative types on Saturday, 19th November from 10 am to 4pm. Come join the fun! We’d love to see you there.



Lastly, and just as importantly, we want to hear about what makes you tick. This month, and well into the future, we look forward to hearing about the kinds of things that inspire you. If you’re in a sharing mood, then please post your muses, recent creations, and inspirations in our comments section below.

    That walk in Dudley sounds very inspirational – love the idea of communing with nature for some down and dirty inspiration!
